This Proposed Albert Gore Official Inaugural Medal, 2001 (Uncirculated) is 69.7mm. Bronze. Karen Worth, Sc. Edge marked: HOPFFMAN MINT – CARMEL, CA. Uncirculated. Obverse with a finely modeled bust of Gore to half left, his name, ALBERT ARNOLD GORE, around. The reverse legend, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INAUGURATED JANARY 20TH, 2001 around a displayed eagle with stars as it appears on the Seal of the President of the United States. This was the medal commissioned by the Hoffman Mint (maker’s of the 1993 Clinton Official Medal) to be entered into the competition for the Official inaugural Medal in the event that Al Gore won the presidency. About 3 unnumbered specimens were given to medals committee members in advance of the election and 15 numbered specimens were struck after the election when it was known that the President-elect was George W. Bush. This is one of the rare unnumbered of about 3 examples. This is a rare find and wonderful piece for that unique item collector.
